Friday practice (2) - Malaysian MotoGP, Sepang

Full Friday free practice times (2) from the Malaysian MotoGP at Sepang, round 16 of 18.
A storm just before the start of the session soaked the track, which then began to dry during the session, with some riders fitting slicks at the very end.

However eight riders, including FP1 leaders Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo did not record a lap time.

Alvaro Bautista had been fastest from Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden in the wet part of FP2.

Please tell me the posters above dont actually put any sway on these times whatsoever. If you actually read the report (it is only 5 lines, so should be manageable for most) It says, Bautista and Rossi were quickest in the wet and some riders put slicks on at the end of teh session. Now I wouldnt put my life on it, but I probably think Rossi and Bautista werent on slicks at the end??? Or am I wrong? Anyone?
